Re: 2012 SWP STI First Sponsor!!!

Update:
The wing arrived in Washington and I will be heading down Wednesday to pick it up.
I've been working with my sponsor Bulletproof Automotive, and by the end of the year I am going to place my deposit on the Varis Widebody Kit D and the Varis carbon fiber hood. I am excited about the kit, but won't be putting it on until sometime 2015. I have a good idea of the wheels that I want, but I am open to suggestions.

Also I've been talking to Dom @ MPS, and he has told me that I could reach around 400hp to the wheels on my stock engine since the car is very little kms. I plan on doing this by March. I am upgrading turbo, injectors, fuel rails, clutch, titanium fmic, intake, turbo inlet, headers, up-pipe, and other small stuff, but I know I am forgetting some stuff :)
Dom's a great tuner. Spent a solid 3.5 hours on my car until the tune was perfect.

Subscribing to this awesome build! I love unique!

thanks alex15

I might have to change my plans, because Dom told me he is closing up shop in February :( So if anybody else know any good tuners around the Seattle area that would be great.

Has anyone heard of PIA?

The only two other options I can think of is Rocket Rally up in Squamish, or English Racing in Oregon. We took a trip down to Oregon in the summer to get my brother's Evo X tuned and they did a great job, and I know of a gd STi that was recently tuned by them as well.

I talked to rocket rally before, they just don't have good customer service.
I've definitely looked into English and PRE before, but the only thing is. That because I want the tune done for our 94 gas just because I would be filling up with this gas most often. I would have to bring a lot of jerry cans, and I don't want to drive down too far with all those mods. I've heard some good thing from PIA, thats why I was looking for something in Seattle

You only need 1 jerry can. Just drive down on their 92, drain it before getting tuned and fill up with the 94 in the jerry can. You can drive back on their 92 no problem, it's actually much higher quality gas than our 94 and not as prone to knock (I'm tuned on 94 and my car performs much better on their 92).

I haven't really heard much about PIA but if you trust them, go for it. Definitely beats the long drive down to Oregon.

Canadianwrxsti, Nice car man! I am also Canadian, in Toronto.

Love the wheels. TE37 is the best wheel for any Japanese sports car.

Nice! I have had them on all my Japanese sports cars.. my FD RX7 and my Supra.


I am considering ordering a set for the 11' STi now. 18x10 +40 seems to be the size and offset.

It seems like you got a nice collection, do you still own both those cars?
Mines not quite as wide, but a little more aggressive offset. But I'm not running a lot of camber too. But that size would look good.

RX7 was sold many years ago and I just sold the Supra at the end of last summer.

Current toys are the 11' STi and 12' GTR.

I don't want to highjack Canadian's thread here, as his STi is amazing! His parts selection is great and the car sounds awesome! Great job. Looking forward to seeing his project moving forward.


As far as my RX7 goes... It was fully built race ported engine, 6766 turbo ect... 500 + RWHP. It was a very fast street car.

From now on I will update my Journal on here with pics. I have not updated it in years lol. I want to leave Canadian's thread for his beast, as it deserves all the attention here.
Thanks for respecting my thread, seems like you really love japanese turbo cars. I'm also a huge fan of the rx7, supra and gtr.

Yes, I like Japanese boosted cars for sure! Can be lots of fun when done right.

Back to the TE37 talk. I am getting ready to pick a set up for the STI for this season. I am thinking the Black edition, but would really like to get my hands on a set of the Mag blue in 18x10 + 40, but I have not seen them in that size anywhere. They are always +30 offset.
